Blood Canticle in a novel by Anne Rice in which she combines the new characters from her novel Blackwood Farm with those from her previous novels in The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy.

The protagonist is a young Mayfair witch named Mona. At the beginning of the novel, Mona is wasting away, victim to a mysterious disease brought on by the birth of her daughter, a so-called Walking Baby.

In what she believes to be her dying hour, Mona - highly romantic in nature - buys quantities of rose and takes them to the house of her lover, Tarquin "Quinn" Blackwood , who is a vampire and a dear companion to Lestat. She lays the roses on his bed, intending for Lestat to make her a vampire.

He does this largely to satisfy Quinn, who could never again hear the thoughts of Mona if he were to do it himself. Secretly, she pines for him as well. As she struggles with herself, Lestat and Quinn, she learns her place in her new world. As she learns, Lestat pledges to find her Taltos child it if still lives. For this, Lestat enlists the help of Maharet. In a very short time, Maharet provides critical information for their search.

The story comes to a dramatic conclusion as Mona, journeying with Quinn and Lestat comes to the remote island where the Taltos live. But instead of finding a secluded paradise, the three vampires learn about years of intrigue and civil war among this isolated race of beings. In the end, the remaining Taltos join the Mayfair clan at the medical center in New Orleans, where they can be safe, learn, and be together as a family.

Mona and Quinn are taken by Khayman to go and live with Maharet and Mekare , where they will be instructed in the ways of vampirism, leaving Lestat alone. Rowan Mayfair seeks out Lestat, half in love with him and exhausted by her life, requesting that he gives her the Dark Gift.

Lestat declines, pained as he is, because she is a guiding light for the Mayfair family and he cannot take her away from it.

Blood Canticle

My recent reading of the Beauty trilogy coincidentally led up to picking up Blood Canticle on the bargain rack. Oh, the horror. The Vampire Lestat has always been the star of the Vampire Chronicles, creating new vampires, finding the original two vampires, losing his vampire body to a mortal, and journeying to Heaven and Hell. The Mayfair Witches stories involve a rather inbred family of Louisiana witches, who, when certain family members meet, create what is known as the Taltos, a child who unfolds to a full adult upon its birth, knowing its name and the full history of the Taltos, also leaving its human mother unable to bear more children. In Blood Canticle, the story begins with Lestat "saving" the dying Mayfair witch Mona, the most recent bearer of a Taltos.

Prince Lestat Blood Canticle is a horror novel by American writer Anne Rice , which incorporates the new characters from her novel Blackwood Farm with those from her previous Vampire Chronicles and Mayfair Witches series. As the novel plays out, Mona and her guardian, Rowan Mayfair , reveal more and more about the powerful genetic plague that has haunted the Mayfairs for generations: their connection to the Taltos , an advanced species of human to which both women have given birth. Mona and the young vampire Tarquin "Quinn" Blackwood are in love. Lestat turns a dying Mona into a vampire so that the lovers can be together forever, also knowing that if Quinn had done it himself, he and Mona could not have delighted in sharing their most intimate thoughts as most vampires are capable of doing. Lestat, Quinn and Mona arrive at the remote island colony of the Taltos, but instead of finding a secluded utopia they discover that years of criminal intrigue and civil war have taken their toll.
